April 28—Disseminating Moon: Sharing. Let the tendency to philosophize today lead you into discovering your own truth about passionate service. What do you believe with your whole heart? Are your values aligned? The conflicts and paradoxes are important teachers asking us to not give up. There is always more to learn and more to share about what we are learning. Your questions may be someone else’s answers.
Monday, April 29. It feels good to be productive today. We have a chance to apply new understanding to our goals. Take advantage of the feeling of balance in spirit, body, and emotion to further intention and notice where you feel successful.
Tuesday, April 30. Mars opposes Saturn today. This aspect between passionate action and responsible accountability has been noticeable for the last few days, especially since the Full Moon. The pressure finally breaks and we learn how to flow harmoniously with passion and responsibility, rather than at odds with them. The day is deliciously deep and beautiful when we acknowledge what truly moves us.
Tuesday, May 1. Beltane. The emphasis between death and life through the opposing signs of Scorpio and Taurus inform the renewing rituals of Beltane. This is the season to celebrate the fertility of earth and the rebirth of joy and life. These are the gifts we receive when we look across the wheel of the year to Samhain, the season of Scorpio. The tension today is felt in our community relationships. The Moon in Aquarius adds the desire to bring vision to the creative forces unleashed in this season. Some will feel that change is happening too slowly, others will insist for more transparency and honesty, while others will question whether the communal values are being upheld. In spite of these valid concerns, take time to honor the wisdom of earth’s cycles. There is time enough.
May 2—Last Quarter Moon: Evaluating. The elements teach us that there is more than one way to apprehend reality. Fire ignites passion; water cools and deepens; air lightens; and earth gives weight. Today’s elemental story is about the differences between air and earth. Notice your natural proclivities and how different approaches by others can annoy or illuminate. Air folks need to entertain possibilities. Earth folks need to be realistic. We can honor both of these methods in our ongoing process of understanding the journey of this lunar cycle. What are you noticing? Is it getting easier to step up to your growing edge? Do you know what you need to dare vulnerability in service to your truth? Using air, record what you are noticing. Using earth, dedicate yourself to practice.
Friday, May 3. Take a journey into beauty and ecstasy. These states can reinforce our capacity to feel more and care more. Notice any tendency that may arise to numb out. Although understandable, considering the pressure we’ve been under, try to make another choice. There is a relationship between right action and vulnerability. Being afraid (just a little) can be a good sign that we are choosing to stay aware and present to all the possibilities around us. Don’t be surprised if guides appear for you. In fact, invoke them right now.
Saturday, May 4. Things come together in a beautiful way today. The challenge is to slow down and enjoy. We feel aligned and open when we honor our commitments, strengths, and passions. Yet don’t force yourself to be too productive, this can also be a good day to take an aimless journey into wonder. We need this kind of inspiration.
